Motorola Edge 30 has 3 cameras at the back and the main camera is awesome. The Motorola Edge 30 main Camera is 50 megapixel Sony IMX 766 F/1.8. What makes this camera setup even more awesome is that this camera lens is combined with the wide aperture of F/1.8, the wider the aperture the more light will it collect and the more sharp the image and video quality will be. This Motorola Edge 30 can record video at 4K at 30 FPS. This is amazing the video will contain more details thanks to its good optimization software and the high-end processor. You can also record 1080P at 120FPS which will contain even more details and will be sharper. There is no optical image stabilization. The Motorola Edge 30 has 2 more camera lenses. Let’s talk about that in detail.
|Triple||50 MP, f/1.8, (wide), 1/1.55″, 1.0µm, multi-directional PDAF, OIS
50 MP, f/2.2, 118˚ (ultrawide), 1/2.76″, 0.64µm, PDAF
2 MP, f/2.4, (depth)
|Features||Dual-LED flash, HDR, panorama|
As I mentioned above that this 50 MP sensor is good. But this Motorola Edge 30 has 2 more camera sensors. There is another camera sensor of 50MP which is an ultra-wide camera. The field of view is 16mm which is wider. This camera sensor also has some amazing autofocus. This sensor can take amazing shots with high accuracy. Its aperture is F/2.2, which makes it sharp and contains good tons on subjects. This Motorola Edge 30 has an amazing camera setup, with fast autofocus lenses, high sensors, and good software optimization. There is another 2MP macro camera which is useless in most situations because it’s only 2MP.
|Single||32 MP, f/2.3, (wide), 0.7µm|
|Video||[email protected], [email protected]/120fps|
When it comes to selfie cameras the Motorola Edge 30 has a single punch whole camera of 32MP which has the largest pixels. This single-punch whole camera contains some awesome details when it comes to daytime shots. At night time this camera sensor struggles a lot. And what makes me more concerned is about its aperture because its aperture, which is only F/2.4 which means the photos will look not accurate as other smartphones, also this camera will suffer a lot at night because the sensor is not that wide to capture more light thus leaving us in disappointed. The camera video capabilities are also kept at 4K 30 FPS and 1080P at 30/120FPS.
|Wi-Fi standard||Wi-Fi 6|

This Motorola Edge 30 is launching with the Wi-Fi 6 which is faster, more efficient and gives you less latency when compared to the Wi-Fi 5. Which will make the user experience smoother and faster. There is also the support of Bluetooth 5.2. Which is also faster and more efficient than version 5.1. Motorola Edge 30 has the USB type C gen 2.0 support which makes sense because of the 33 watts of fast wire charging so it must need more bandwidth for charging speeds. It also helps with the data transfer because it helps with the faster read and write speeds. Motorola Edge 30 also has NFC support which is also useful. You can pay, and transfer files at high speeds thanks to the NFC support.

The Motorola Edge 30 comes with stereo speakers. This Motorola Edge 30 has nice sound quality with a nice amount of bass in it. This will help in gaming because there are two speakers one at the bottom and one at the top which will help gamers. Video watching and hearing to music also going to be good. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack which is neither good nor bad.
|Colors||Meteor Grey, Supermoon Silver, Aurora Green|
The Motorola Edge 30 is going to lunch in three different colors. Meteor Grey, Supermoon Silver, andAurora Green. Motorola is known for its premium colors with good contexts. I like the Supermoon Silver color because it looks better than these two colors.
